In this policy, the term "personal data" refers to data that relates to an individual and identifies this person either directly or indirectly (in conjunction with other information that may be likely to come into the possession of Zühlke), such as your name, email address or telephone number.
Collection of personal data
In general, you can access the Zühlke Website without having to enter any personal data. No personal data is stored automatically. To access some areas of our Website, for example to download certain documents or for other specific purposes, we may need to obtain personal data from you. The entering of personal data in such cases is voluntary, and you are explicitly requested to provide such personal data and informed about the intended use of such personal data. If you do not provide us with the required personal data, you will not be able to use some functions offered by our Website, such as communication, downloading documents or job postings. The typical reasons for us collecting personal data are listed below, along with a brief description of how your personal data is treated in each case.
Particularly sensitive personal data
As a rule, Zühlke does not obtain any "particularly sensitive personal data" via its Website. "Particularly sensitive personal data" includes personal data concerning race, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health or sex life. By voluntarily providing us with particularly sensitive personal data (such as by submitting your CV or applying for a job online), you expressly consent to the use of your personal data as described in this policy.
Disclosure of your personal data
Zühlke is a global organisation. We have various legal entities (e.g. national companies) and partners in Switzerland, in certain EU Member States as well as in other European and Asian countries. Our internal processes and infrastructures are therefore international in their nature and scope.
Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your personal data with third parties, for the purpose of processing it on our behalf. We require that third parties treat the personal data they receive in accordance with Zühlke's Data Privacy and Security Policies.
Your personal data may therefore also be subject to cross-border disclosure. Cross-border disclosure of your personal data will be conducted only (i) to countries with equivalent data protection standards, or (ii) on the basis of officially recognised data protection agreements, or (iii) on the basis of officially recognised standard data protection clauses.
Duration of retention
Your personal data will only be retained for as long as is necessary for the intended processing. In addition, legally required retention periods remain reserved.
Reorganisation of the company
As is the case with many other organizations, Zühlke may reorganise its business units around the world, either as a result of the acquisition of new entities or the disposal or merger of existing entities. If this is done, personal data may be disclosed to potential or actual purchasers of parts of our business or personal data may be obtained from potential sellers. In doing so, we strive to ensure that confidentiality is suitably maintained for personal data that is disclosed in the course of such transactions.
Data security and integrity
Zühlke takes various technological and procedural security measures to protect the personal data we collect, use or transfer against loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, please note that, due to the openness and insecure nature of the internet, Zühlke cannot take responsibility for the security of the transmission of personal data over the internet.
